The Best Light

This photography tour to Thailand has been put together by our expert team of tour leaders and local guides to ensure each day we are always photographing in the best light possible.

Over the 13 days, you will learn all about lighting, and how to overcome any challenging lighting situations you may face.

Expect ancient temples at sunrise, monks at sunset, and everything in between.

The Best Locations

These are not your normal tourist destination, and this is not your average tour.

Although we will be taking you to some sights you will read about in your guidebook, on this photo tour expect the unexpected. Where others might go in, we go around. We take you beyond the tourist trail to find the real Thailand.

This is a custom designed travel tour, by a photographer, for photography enthusiasts.

Less Rushed

Hate feeling rushed in big group tours? Us too. That’s why we always keep our group sizes small, so you will never feel rushed.

We make sure you have all the time you need to get the best photographs possible. This also means that anytime you feel like taking a break or skipping a location, fine with us.

We are here to support your photographic passion, and if that means taking a break, you got it!

Buddhas and Temples

Thailand is home to more than 40,000 Buddhist temples, with over 300 in Chiang Mai alone! We have picked out the best of the best for you to photograph during your time with us in Northern Thailand.

Love Buddhas? Gold, stone, tall, short, reclining, seated – in Thailand, there are Buddhas everywhere, to meet every taste.

Part of Thailand's uniqueness is its ability to blend religion and spirituality seamlessly into everyday life. This way of living with spirituality playing a leading role in daily life is as old as the country itself and something you will bear witness to on this tour.

One-on-One Access to Tour Leaders

Come along and join us on a journey through one of the safest and most awe-inspiring destinations in this part of the world.

Your tour leaders are sure to work in some special surprises. Want to try light painting or brush up your food photography? We’ll add in fun, offbeat photo outings to play with specific skills and photo tricks.

We specially-design our tour as a small group experience. You’ll have plenty of room to find just the right light and with a 6:1 ratio of guests to photo leaders, you have easy one-on-one access to your experienced tour leaders.

Improve Your Camera Skills

If you like photo vacations with an emphasis on improving your camera skills at the same time, a smaller group presents a greater chance you’ll learn what you came to – and then some!

Over the course of the tour, you will get help in areas you may be struggling with, in a small group setting, out in the field.

This will help maximize your learning opportunities and give you time to get individual help, ask questions, have your images reviewed (time and schedule permitting) and allow us to customize the tour dynamically based on each guest needs and skill level.

Fall in Love with Thailand

With a popular phrase that translates as “don’t worry” (mai pen rai), it is no wonder that Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

From the picture-perfect beaches of the southern islands to the lush greenery of the jungle and mountains of the north, Thailand is as diverse as it is magical.

On this photo tour, we will be exploring the north of the country looping from Chiang Mai through Pai to the Mae Hong Son area and Chiang Rai before returning to Chiang Mai. We will journey through tribal villages high in the mountains, rice paddies, and Buddhist temples.

We will be stopping at markets and UNESCO world heritage sights to explore the rich history dating back to 1238 when Thailand was the Kingdom of Siam.

There is also an option to extend the tour by 5 days so you can explore the Sukhothai Historical Park and Bangkok.

Temples and Rituals

Each temple we have chosen to shoot reflects a different time period and architectural style. From the 15th century masterpiece that is Wat Chedi Luang to the unmistakable murals of the 14th Century Wat Phra Singh. Some of the temples we will be taking you to include:

  • Wat Chedi Luang
  • Wat Phra Singh
  • Wat Doi Kongmu temple
  • Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple
  • Wat Rong Khun (The White Temple)
  • Blue Temple

For each temple visit, we have carefully selected the best time of day to photograph. We have arranged to go at sunrise and sunset as well as blue hour and golden hour shoots. In addition, we have arranged for you to witness a sacred ritual performed by novice Buddhist Monks.

Afternoon Tea

Chinese tea in the highlands of Thailand?

That's right, we are going to take you high up into the mountains of Thailand to spend the afternoon learning all about tea in a remote plantation. This will be a unique opportunity to capture a side of Thailand not often seen by tourists.

Maekhong River

The Maekhong River is is Asia’s seventh longest river running from Tibet through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. It is located in the Golden Triangle where Thailand borders Myanmar and Laos. Here you will get to experience the unique culture of this area influenced by its neighbors Myanmar and Laos.
Mountains and Waterfalls

When many people think of Thailand they think of secluded beaches and a turquoise sea. But did you know that Thailand boasts some of the most vibrant green landscapes?

With miles upon miles of dense jungle, concealing hidden waterfalls and diverse wildlife.

No to mention the rice paddies, orchid farms, and rugged mountains – Thailand is diverse.

There will be plenty of opportunity on this tour for chasing waterfalls and capturing the rich landscape of Northern Thailand.

Thai Food and Markets

We can’t talk about Thailand without talking about the incredible flavors, freshness, and variety of Thai food. Thailand boasts some of the most delicious and diverse food in the world.

During your time with us on this tour you will experience every kind of Thai dining there is, from the delicious street food of the Thai markets to home-cooked Thai meals. You will even get to try your hand at Thai cooking.

Thailand’s market culture helps with the freshness of its food, something you will get to experience when you visit the many different markets on this tour. From the fruit markets to the night bazaars and walking markets – there is so much to see and smell.

The Sukhothai Historical Park and Bangkok (optional 5-day extension)

Ever imagined what life was like 800 years ago in Thailand?

A visit to The Sukhothai Historical Park will offer you a glimpse back in time to the powerful Siamese Kingdom that existed in this exquisite land.

Expect crumbling temples, towering Buddhas, and fascinating art in the stucco reliefs.

Once we have taken the time to fully explore Sukhothai we will make our way to Thailand's capital city of Bangkok.

Often the first stop on everyone’s Thailand Itinerary, Bangkok can be crowded and at times overwhelming. That's where we come in, we have found the perfect base to explore Bangkok for two days. With the help of our expert guide, you will navigate Bangkok's chaos knowing you are in expert hands.

FAQs

What is the physical fitness level needed for this tour?

Although for most locations there will be some walking involved, these will be short and easy even when we are in the remote regions. So if you are in good health and fitness level, you will be fine. But this tour is NOT recommended for people with mobility issues.

What skill level do I have to be in photography?

We encourage all skill levels to join us on this tour. It is not about what you know it's about doing photography together, enjoying the adventure, and learning a few things along the way. Whatever your level you can get some tips from the tour leader. We do however recommend you have a basic level of knowledge and experience using your camera. You don't even have to be a photographer, but can come along and appreciate the relaxed pace of this tour.

Where does the tour start and how can I get there?

The tour starts in the northern city of Chiang Mai which is well connected to the rest of South East Asia with numerous flights. You can either fly directly to Chiang Mai airport connecting at places such as Guangzhou or even Taiwan. Or most people find it easier to fly to Bangkok and catch an internal flight to Chiang Mai (around 1 hour 15 mins).

What sort food should I expect to eat?

Thailand is a true food lovers paradise and nowhere more so than northern Thailand. On all of our tours we try to incorporate places to eat that make delicious local cuisine rather than big chain restaurants as this is part of the whole travel experience. Whilst most Thai dishes will be on the spicier side, you can request this to be dialed down when ordering. There will also options which won't be spicy at all.

I don't like Thai food, will there be other options?

In the big cities such as Chiang Mai and Bangkok, there will be western chain restaurants such as McDonalds and KFC. There will also be restaurants that serve burgers, pizzas and other western food. But please note that these are not part of the tour.

In the more remote areas there WILL NOT be other options for food. So we would suggest informing us well in advance of the trip so that we can try to make alternative arrangements for you.

Is Thailand safe?

Thailand is an incredibly safe country where the people are warm and friendly. As long as you use the same level of caution and common sense as you would do in your own country you shouldn't have any problems.

What if I don't have a roommate but don't want to pay the extra for a single?

If you request to share a room and we cannot match you with a roommate you will be required to pay the single supplement fee. We do our best to pair everyone up but due to gender mismatches, we may not always have equal numbers of males or females. You can certainly bring a friend along to share.

The tour was non-stop and full of photographic opportunities that one would not normally have.

I like my time to be filled with planned events or visits and this tour had minimal down time. Even though some of our bus trips were long, the bus that we had made it easy to handle.

The tour was non-stop and full of photographic opportunities that one would not normally have.

The people of India were amazing but when I look at my photos, I realize the highlight of my trip was the Pushkar camel fair.
